..how much has the PS3 sold..in one year?
Man since you're such a Sony Fanturd and along with may others are relentlessly hating on Halo 3 I became very curious as to why you guys hated Halo 3 so much.
So, I went to VGCHARTS and did some research (Since most Sony fans believe vgcharts just as much as they believe Sony)
Here is what I found. And because of this I now know why you and many other sony fans hate Halo3.
During the week of halo3's release in the US alone halo outsold EVERY single ps3 software titles in the top 150 combined by more than 2.4 million copies. NOW THAT'S INCREDIBLE!
I listed below the numbers that I pulled from Vgcharts for that week. Please verify them if you need to.
PS3 - Titles combined
15,532 Madden 08
6,410 World Series Poker
5,738 TW 2008
5,340 Rainbow 6 Vegas
4,905 NHL 08
Halo3 - 2,634,108
that's a difference of +2,438,088 for halo3
You can continue on hating on halo3 now, because I fully understand and no longer blame you for you jealousy. Disagree if you want, but the proof is in the pudding!
I'm sure my bubbles are history now, because that's what you guys do when you are hit with solid facts. Neutral folks out there, haha I'm gonna need some bubble support after this. I did it because it needed to be said.
Thanks in advance.
You have a point, but you're talking about a game that has been hyped up to all hell that has just been released. Of course high profile games are going to sell thousands in release week, or is halo 3's case millions.
Comparing say, the weeks release of MGS: GotP and halo would have a more solid arguement. Even though I believe MGS is a better game, halo 3 is still mostly likely going to sell more. What has this world become...
You make an excellent point, but you know what, I really didn't do it as a true comparison. It's a no brainer that a title as big as halo would sell the way it did. I guess there were two points that I was really trying to make there.
One being, people are just hating on halo just to be hating. I have never seen a game sell this well and can't even get it props from fanboys from the other side simply because of hate. Even if the game isn't as good as teh hype, it's still a title with scores ranging from 8.5 - 10. Yet fanboys continue to say it sucks, and it's garbage, and oooh it got beat by orange box, etc. The game is a good game and doesn't deserve to be bashed the way it is by sony fans.
My second point was simple, the reason halo is doing so well is because it is truly supported by it console's users or it's supporters. Where as it appears that PS3 fans buy more blu-ray movies that actual video games. HS is a great title and they constantly brag about it, yet looking at the sales figures with the exception of RFOM and MOTORSTORM, I don't think any other PS3 title has sold 1 million copies world wide. Where as the 360 has 24 titles that fit that category. I mean the numbers don't lie.
These people talk a lot of smack, but they are not spending any money. to support their console, I agree with the old saying "Talk is Cheap" and in there case, very cheap. I know some are buy games, but most aren't.
Guy, like lightning, Nasim, Secret, and a couple other never let up on bashing the 360 and or halo3. I mean what gives. Give it a rest dudes.
You make an excellent point there my friend. Bubbles for being a straight shooter.
"Here is what I found. And because of this I now know why you and many other sony fans hate Halo3."
I'm not a Sony fan and I hate Halo 3. The entire Halo series is extremely over hyped. I'm pretty sure it's mostly played by conformist prepubescent teens. It only became popular because it was the first game to introduce online console gaming.
Anyone who wants to play a REAL high quality game should play Half-Life 2. It is leaps and bounds better than all 3 Halo games put together.
Note: To be fair, I have not played Halo 3. I played the first two and never enjoyed them. From what I've read though Halo 3 is pretty much the same as the second.
And I would say Halo 3 is a buyer not a renter.You can't ignore its sells
I'd say everybody bought it.
... but ... Orange box will be no means be a SNUFF in the big picture. Not saying you (since you are not saying it), but FAR TO MANY are getting uptight when folks express that they may actually like Orange Box MORE than Halo3.
I have H3 (and loving it .. FORGE ROCKS) but look even more forward to Orange Box this week. ALWAYS been a Half Life fan !! The success of that game CANNOT be denied.
As is said, this is not aimed at you, just adding my two cents to your comment which I agree with.
You should hang out with #2 maybe some of his brains will rub off on you.
No one expects a shooter to compete with Football.
It sucks to see Orange Box that high, it has 5 games, and it's valve.
I think people are waking up to the reality that Halo 3 is a good but not great game.
That means people buy games then just rent them. To developers thats not a problem. I had gamefly but it got boring after awhile..netflix for movies is better..at least you watch a movie once and send it off...you might be playing a game for about a half a month or more.
Good! A game that actually deserves the #1 spot.......
Can't wait for this one. Between Half-Life SP and TF2 MP...Halo 3 will be getting very little game time from me. Some good stuff to fill the gap until CoD4 is released.
And keep in mind that this is cross-platform, rather than solely 360.
I'd imagine more PS3ers will be buying Orange Box than 360ers, just because PS3 doesn't have as many killer apps at the moment. So most likely PS3 owners make up a large portion of this stat.
And FIFA '08? Come on. Those UK types can't get enough of their 'football'. It's only natural.
Everyone likes a deal and with a average of 10 bucks per game in the orange box...you cant go wrong either way.
I'm actually curious how well this will sell. As the guy above said, your really only paying 10$ per game, but chances are you already have HL2 an Eps 1, so will deter any potential buyers? I wonder.
Orange box is a better buy so whatever.
in anycase this is good news for xbox360 and pc owners because its for half life2 episode is for those system for now. LOL I'm buying this game for my pc. hehehhe
and will be loving The Orange Box in a couple of days!
Having a library of great games to choose from, rocks.
who the hell rents halo 3?
Believe it or not more people game offline than they do online. Halo 3 definitely falls into the buy catergory for me because I am into online gaming.
IVE HAD GAMEFLY FOR 2 YRS. SAVED ME 6000$$$$$$$. IVE PLAYED EVERY 360 GAME. RIGHT NOW I GOT HALO 3, PGR4, MADDEN 08, GEARS OF WAR AND WAITING ON ORANGE BOX. i just told gamefly i never recieved halo 3 and now ill keep it. why buy a game for 60$$$$$ when u can rent 4 for 40$$$ month. next games im getting and always get are mass effect, blacksite, cod4, lost odysey, assassins creed, and i dont know whatever else is fun. when i beat them or get tired of them i send them back.since i got halo 3 i havent touched madden, thank god i didnt waste 60$$ on it. ill send it back and re-rent it when i want my football fix. ill say it again if you dont have gamefly ur a fu**in idiot. i wouldnt be playing games on a console if i had to spend 60 $$ every time lmfao!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
well lets see, at the end of day, you have absolutely nothing to show for your money. So you rent for 10 months, thats 400 out the door, with nothing to show for it, yeah only 8 games compared to the ones you could have rented, but you still have something tangible. And nice idea of robbing a company taht has been serving you, seems fitting for you i guess. Oh yeah, niners freaking suck man, go RAIDERS!!!!
Renting shouldn't be in the same sentence with The Orange Box.
Wow, the 360 is dominating the top 10 cross-platform games. #9 is a PS3 game, how did that get in there?
Look at the amount of content you'll be getting for the average price of a game these days. I'll support EA and Valve on this one.
this is a a must buy 5 games for the price of one .if they would have made the game with just hl2-2 and tf2 i would have still paid the same price for it.
